You’re welcome to both of you. I hope you like the live view as well as I!

I like it a lot. Just messing with it now. Is sound an option in multi view?

Not sure. I haven’t tried. The only thing I could think is double tap the camera to enlarge it and check. :slight_smile:

No, there’s no sound in multi cam view.

two comments that i posted in beta testing and repost here:

(1) group - currently one camera can only belong to one group which is inconvenient. For example, i’d like a group called “all cameras”, another group called “front”, another group called “backyard”, etc…
if you are not on wifi, it does not make sense to connect all camera if you only want to check one camera to save the internet traffic

(2) connecting speed from multiple live view to individual live view:
in TinyCam Pro, switching from multiple live view to individual live view is INSTANEOUS (less than 0.1 second) whereas in Wyzecam app it takes several seconds (redo the three auth steps).

You can vote for it here Multi-camera view on Alexa but I’m not sure about the progress on this feature as the post doesn’t have a tag.

Lack of a tag means that’s it’s a relatively new topic that hasn’t yet been reviewed by Wyze staff.

Exactly, that’s why we don’t know about the progress of this feature yet.

I have 3 wyze cams, if I try to view all 3 at the same time in a group they will constantly drop connection. If I do 2 cams it works just fine with the occasional reconnect. Is that signal issue with my wifi or something else?

Your upload speed could be affecting this. The following is from the camera specs page. Remember this is per camera.

Connectivity Requirements: Upload speed 1.0 Mbps for SD and 1.5 Mbps for HD

(360p was not listed, and is only available for V2 and Pan cameras)

I checked out some wireless settings in my router turns out my 2.4ghz channel was on wireless G.instead of N. I went from 1.5 Mbps up to 22.2 so lets see if that works better

Awesome! Let us know if that worked out for you, or not. :slight_smile:

Still having the same issues. My two front cams are right next to each other (outside) one has 56% wifi signal the other is 65% the third is on the back porch and is at 51%. It always the first cam that drops out and won’t connect. When Viewing all three. Here is a screen shot of my speed test on my 2.4ghz channel. It doesn’t matter what quality settings I use either the first cam always drops out when viewing all 3. Viewing just 2 no problem

Installed the beta, multi-view is great so far! Having the ability to play sound on one or more devices simultaneously would be great for our two young kids. That way we’d know if either one or both are fussing.

Just out of curiosity, which router do you have? Those WiFi strength numbers seem kind of low to me. I upgraded my R7000 to a mesh system, and have much better luck with my cameras now.

It’s the standard Comcast modem

I suspect that might be your problem. Comcast’s modems/routers may not be designed to work in a smart home. This is just a guess as I don’t have any experience with their equipment. Is there a Comcast forum you can peruse to see if others are having issues with their Comcast equipment while using IoT devices? I stopped using ISP issued equipment quite a while ago. In fact, if we switch to CenturyLink, I’m going to use their modem, but use my own WiFi router in place of the built-in one on their device.

Is that speed test taken within inches or feet of the cameras?

just updated my Wyze app with the Camera Group feature. However, when I created a Camera Group, it unfortunately removed and replaces the current individual camera shortcuts that, were on the home screen. This let me choose an individual camera that I was interested in looking at. I want the ability to choose individual cameras or a group. How can I “add” another shortcut to the home screen to include the Camera Group for those times when I want to stream them all at the same time but still have the ability to pick individual cameras? If there isn’t away at this time then please update the Wyze App to allow having both the Individual views as well as Group view, not one or the other.
